Cardisco, Marco (called il Calabrese), a reputable painter of Calabria, flourished from 1508 to 1542, and probably studied under P. da Caravaggio. There is a picture by him, in the church of San Agostino at Naples, representing that saint disputing with heretics. He also painted several other pictures, among which is a Dead Christ, with two laterals of St. Peter and St. Paul, in the chapel of the church of San Pietro ad Aram, at Naples. See Spooner, Biog.
